    1. A Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes.

    amazon.com

    The brush has special vents that allow air to flow so hair dries faster. Plus, it's quicker than using a dryer and then a flat iron or curling iron, which equals less heat damage.

    Promising review: "Just wow! I was skeptical at first. I wish I would have bought this sooner! After showering I get all the moisture I can out of my hair. And leave it to kind of air dry while I’m getting ready, having coffee, or whatever I’m doing that morning. It takes me about seven minutes to dry my hair if that! I have very thick naturally curly hair. It’s is a fabulous tool to have in your arsenal! May be the only one I have to use. No flat iron needed as of yet! Would buy again in a heartbeat!" —D.K

    Get it from Amazon for $40.99+ (available in five colors).

    2. The Wand, a mini handheld filter that may help reduce your wine-induced headaches. This lil' guy is designed to remove the histamines and sulfites in alcohol that may trigger headaches and hangovers. It's also supposed to revive oxidized wine so you don't have to toss an open bottle.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This works. I love wine, but have terrible allergies to the histamines, sulfites, and preservatives in wine. I actually use one wand for two glasses of wine. I was very skeptical, but it works like a dream! Thank you PureWine. This is really a breakthrough for me." —Penny Froh

    Get a three-pack from Amazon for $11.99.

    3. Or wine drops if you're looking for a more discreet option. These do the same thing as the wands but strangers won't stare at you wondering what tf you're doing.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "This product was really amazing. I buy a lot of stuff on Amazon and never write a review, however this product is worth writing one. I've used the Wand as well and like it, however the biggest drawback of the Wand is having to explain why I'm using it to others and causing undue attention. This is a quick solution to that issue. The product itself works great. I get bad headaches whenever I drink wine, however with this product I'm able to drink two to three glasses without the headaches. I'm not sure exactly what causes the headaches, whether it's tannins, sulfites, etc., however I just know this cures the issue. I'm sure there are those who are skeptical, I certainly was, but I can truly say it works for me and hopefully others will find success using it as well." —luke

    4. An immunity-boosting allergy supplement because your doggo deserves relief from their allergies and skin sensitivities. These soft chews deliver a dose of probiotics and other nutrients to help improve immune function, aide digestion, promote healthy skin, and add shine to a dog's coat.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My mini doxie has had skin sensitivity issues literally since I got her when she was a puppy. She has pretty much been on Apoquel most of her life. It's just expensive and a pain in the butt to call my vet and get more every month. I tried food with salmon in it and she refused to eat it. I was skeptical of this because it doesn't smell fishy at all. The first two weeks off of Apoquel and onto this once a day was tough. She was super itchy but didn't break out in any rashes like she had done in the past if she was off of the Apoquel. So, we stuck it out thinking it may just take longer to get into her system. I am so glad that we did because it WORKS. I highly recommend trying this and if it doesn't work right away give it a little time and hopefully you will have positive results like I did!" —BlueFit_5591

    Get it from Amazon for $26.97.

    5. A sushi-making kit for anyone battling the urge to order delivery sushi...for the third time this week. This kit comes with everything you need (minus the rice, fish, and add-ins), and reviewers say it's easy to learn, even for first-time sushi chefs.

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness! This product was so easy to use! Well worth the money! I’m always skeptical on buying products like this because I’m not always sure on the reviews; I hate wasting money. If you're on the hunt to find the right tools to make your own sushi I definitely recommend buying this product!" —Jamie

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95.

    6. A mounted brush so you can satisfy your cat's ceaseless demands for scritches. Just mount it to a corner with the included adhesive strips and watch as your beloved babies leave you for the warm embrace of this gray and white piece of plastic.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical at first, but we have two wall corners that our cats are always rubbing on and we have to constantly wipe clean. Assembly and installation took less than five minutes for both. I placed them at two different heights: one that would be comfortable for them to rub their faces on, and the other so they could rub their body along. The cats were leery at first, but it didn't take long for them to figure out what was up. Now they're always rubbing against it when they go in and out or walk past. Glad they're enjoying it, and that we not longer have to keep wiping those walls down." —Jason Ross

    Get it from Amazon for $3.99.

    7. A box of pore-tightening, skin-lifting face masks to truly terrify you, first because you'll look like a zombie once you've applied it, and second because it's so darn effective at reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

    Reviewer before and after showing the mask made their skin look tighter and reduced the appearance of some wrinkles
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was pretty skeptical but I tried the Hanacure mask and really liked it. But $20+ a pop was too much for me. So when I saw this zombie mask I thought I'd give it a try. OMG this stuff is great! Yes, it has a bit of an odor but it is not that bad. It goes away as the stuff dries. And yes it is a bit harder to get off than Hanacure but just use a wet wash cloth or go in the shower, big deal. Those drawbacks are NOT worth anything less than five stars. It is results that matter, and this stuff has made my 65-year-old skin so smooth and soft. I couldn't believe it after the first mask how good my skin looked. My visible pores have always bothered me but now they are so much improved. I also now use this two times a week. Great results. Don't forget your neck and you can also put any leftovers on the tops of your hands. Really firms them up and makes them incredibly soft too. I will be ordering the double set so I am never without. Love it!" —Pearldiver1

    8. A devastatingly effective handheld vacuum that'll suck up pet hair with ease. It has a special rubber nozzle designed to trap every piece of loose fur.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy crap!! Are you skeptical when it comes to buying stuff online? ME TOO! That's why I figured all of these rave reviews were a crock of crap. I've seriously bought every kind of vacuum out there, including the Rumba, which is about as intelligent as a cotton swab. But I have four cats and a golden retriever, so I was getting desperate! I believe the saying is… a picture is worth a thousand words. Check mine out (above)! Of note — the 'before' picture was taken of my dog's bed AFTER it went through the washer and dryer. Look at all of that left-behind hair!!! And the 'after' picture was taken after only THREE MINUTES spent vacuuming her bed. I. Am. SOLD! BTW, I've NEVER taken the time to review a product before, just FYI." —Luka Chan

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99.

    9. A foot file if you want before and after photos that'll make you feel a bit queasy. I mean... *insert Will Smith tada meme*.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am shocked. I just received this today and used it as soon as I got out of the shower. I have not had a pedicure since March (and it's October!) because of COVID-19. I live in the south and tend to be barefoot throughout the summer. I've tried pumice stones, PedEgg, foot baths, you name it to keep my heels soft and not dry, cracked and scratchy. I saw the reviews for this product and thought, 'OK it's cheap, let's try it.' It is INCREDIBLE. It took me literally less than five minutes to shave away months of nasty dry skin. My heels aren't cracked anymore and are much smoother than before. I'm sure when I do it again tomorrow it will make my feet even softer. I only stopped because it was getting a bit messy since I had so much dry skin. I can not say enough good things about this product. I was a total skeptic, but have been blown away." —Marlew

    Get it from Amazon for $7.45.

    10. A handheld steamer, because everyone hates realizing the one shirt they want to wear is balled up and wrinkled.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "So I was a bit skeptical because of the price point and never having owned a steamer before. I ordered this for clothes and to help get the nice fold in my curtains. It did wonderfully, performed just as described. Directions were easy to follow, heated up very quickly and gave a good amount of steam to help tame the thick curtains in my living room. Great product." —Brittany Bjornholm

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    11. A set of Kegel weights for helping not only with incontinence but also potentially making sex easier, less painful, and more enjoyable. These are especially great for people who've just given birth, though anyone can benefit from strengthening their pelvic floor muscles.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical. I have the sneeze-and-pee issue. It’s ridiculous and embarrassing. I read the reviews on this and decided to give it a try. After a week or so of using them (15 minutes or more a day), I noticed a difference. I’m on the fourth color and now when I sneeze, no wee. Yay!" —Steph

    Get a set of six weights from Amazon for $49.99.

    12. A pack of reusable toaster bags so you can satisfy your 2 a.m. grilled cheese cravings in minutes. This sure beats making it in a pan...and then having to clean said pan.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I bought this for my elderly mom who loves grilled cheese sandwiches. I was skeptical that this bag on the toaster would work but it did! The only thing I would suggest is after you toast the sandwich, let it sit for a few minutes so the cheese melts better. I prepared it and gave it to her straight away. Bread was toasted on the outside. Clean up was easy. All in all impressive!" —Christopher Carnrick at Pirate Palms

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $7.99.

    13. A multi-use skincare oil to treat a variety of issues, including uneven skin, stretch marks, and acne scars. It helps your body retain moisture (bye-bye dry skin!) and absorbs into the skin fast so you won't feel greasy.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of how amazing the reviews are, but this stuff is pure gold. I use it on stretch marks on my legs and in just a week, they went from bright angry red to purple. I use it twice a day if I remember, and it's amazing. I also rub it on my face after I wash my face, and it has made my acne on my cheeks go WAY down and is removing the scars. I have amazing skin now. I use this stuff EVERY day, and I've barely even put a dent in it. This size is amazing, and for the price, holy cow. I seriously never leave reviews, but seriously this stuff is pure magic. I tried vitamin C serum, rosehip oil, witch hazel, etc. and this is the only thing that has worked for me. Good luck!!" —Jessamyne Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $8.89+ (available in three sizes).

    14. An at-home teeth whitening kit that'll help lighten your smile and is a heck of a lot cheaper than a trip to the dentist. This set comes with a comfortable custom fit tray and an LED light so you can chill with your favorite show while your teeth whiten. If you use it consistently, you can expect a set of pearly whites that are two to eight shades whiter than before.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is amazing quality; I'm surprised it worked especially with the price. I was so scared and skeptical since I have extremely sensitive teeth! The first few times you feel like some stains were lifted and others weren't, so you think it looks blotchy. Don't be scared; it's lifting the really bad stains first!! And the blotchiness you feel is there but goes away after the next treatment. It worked in four days; I saw the difference in my teeth. No Photoshop needed! I'm continuing to use it and reordering refills :)" —Angela G ♡

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    15. A pack of matatabi chew sticks if you're tired of your cat clawing at the couch legs and chewing through cables. These sticks — matatabi is a plant native to Japan and a catnip alternative (great for kitties who show no interest in catnip!) — will provide an outlet for their destructive energy that isn't something valuable, like your very expensive leather shoes. Plus, the stick format helps keep their teeth clean.

    Meowy Janes is a wonderfully named small business based in New Egypt, New Jersey. It specializes in catnip and catnip alternatives.

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical about this, but my cat likes to sneak outdoors and will chew on sticks or leaves that I may drop on my way to the waste bin as I carry them through the house to the garage. This is his favorite Christmas present. He is all over it. Then he naps. Funny." —Rebecca Warren

    Get them from Amazon for $9.97.

    16. A set of anti-chafing thigh bands because hell hath no fury like a pair of angry, sweaty, chafing thighs.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    Promising review: "Ladies, we can finally toss the deodorant...these things work! I was hella skeptical because my thighs are resistant to any sort of chub rub defense. I wore them while walking at least five hours at a music festival and they stayed put without me ever needing to adjust them! I couldn't believe it! My delicate inner thigh skin was preserved; not a chub-rub in sight and they're so feminine and romantic-looking that I didn't even care if someone caught a peek at that beautiful lace. Way sexier than my usual biker shorts. Love that I can wear dresses all day now without worrying about my thighs overheating." —OceanHips

    Get them from Amazon for $18.95 (available in sizes S–3XL and 17 styles).

    17. A plant-based stainless steel cleaner and polish for helping you conquer the very time-consuming task of wiping down all the appliances in your kitchen. Reviewers say it helps keep your surfaces smudge-free for longer, meaning less cleaning for you!

    Promising review: "We've tried all sorts of cleaners on our stainless steel appliances, so I was pretty skeptical of this but thought I'd give it a shot. It works great; appliances haven't looked this good since we bought the house. Even my husband, who didn't like stainless-steel appliances because they didn't clean up well says this is great stuff!" —Warren's Grammie

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $16.99.

    18. A cat carrier so you can travel with and groom your kitters without issue. If your cat has decided that their carrier is Public Enemy No. 1, this bag is a good alternative and is designed to keep your cat calm with its roominess and heads-out design.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical like many others, but this bag is magical, I think! The cats fought over who got to sit/sleep on it straight out of the package, and they don't mind being zipped up in it at all! I used it two days ago to cut their nails — first time I was able to cut them by myself! There are two Velcro slots at the front on each side for their paws to come out. This morning, I used the bag to apply medicine to their ears by myself...super easy! It's made of a heavyweight-type fabric that keeps their feet secure so they don't run away, and protects you from their sharp nails. No, it doesn't protect you from biting, but I don't know of anything reasonable that does. But for normal cats, who just don't like to be 'fiddled' with, this bag is a godsend. I highly recommend it!" —K. Zainea

    Get it from Amazon for $35.60+ (available in sizes XS–XL and eight colors).

    19. A natural shoe deodorizer spray to get rid of the funk from your work flats. It's made with essential oils and smells like lemon and eucalyptus so you'll probably want to spray it around the rest of your house, too.

    The spray bottle
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm normally highly skeptical of 'natural' type products when it comes to matters of cleaning and related fields. But after years of white powders, aerosol sprays, and other more synthetic-type approaches to shoe odor issues failed to get the job done, I followed reviews to Lumi's Natural Shoe Deodorizer and decided to give it a shot... And WOW! Following the first application (sprayed in notoriously stinky shoes the night before I planned to wear them), any trace of previously stubborn and offending odor was 100% eliminated and stayed that way all day (despite wearing the shoes on an all-day hike in 95 degree heat). Finally removing these sweat-drenched shoes at day's end, I expected at least some stink to return, but no! The shoes merely had a pleasantly faint residual smell of the Lumi spray itself, and both my socks and feet were neutrally odorless. " —RKJ

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    20. An antifungal tea tree balm that'll help treat basically any somewhat embarrassing skin condition you can think of: athlete's foot, ringworm, jock itch, and even just dry skin.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical of all the 5-star ratings for this product. I always read the reviews for a product before I purchase them. This product has earned all 5 stars given. I have battling a stubborn bout with athlete's foot. I noticed a great improvement OVERNIGHT. I applied the balm before bed and put some socks on. In the morning, I saw a dramatic improvement. I love this ointment. Its worth every cent!" —Beantown Gal

    Get it from Amazon for $30.57.

    21. A magical body lotion, aptly called "Scent of a Sorceress" (mysterious!!), if you want long-lasting moisture without feeling so greasy you could basically glide down the hallway like it was a slip n' slide. If you're a fan of the The Witcher books (a great video game series too, btw!), you may remember that lilac and gooseberry is Yennefer's signature scent.

    Promising review: "I was a little skeptical, but I'm so glad I bought this lotion! This lotion is fantastic. It's made my hands so nice and soft but it doesn't leave my skin with a slick feeling like some do after I first apply them. It absorbs really well. The scent is lovely. My husband loves the smell too! I almost wish the scent was slightly stronger but that's just because I love lilac and gooseberry." —Alice042

    Get it from Bella Des Natural Beauty on Amazon Handmade for $17.99.

    22. A liquid tartar remover because your dog desperately needs their teeth cleaned but won't let you near him with a toothbrush. (Think of it as doggy mouthwash!) Just add this to their water and you'll notice your dog's plaque and bad breath subside.

    Reviewer's before and after of their dog's teeth showing the rinse removed a lot of the dark brown stains
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was highly skeptical this would do anything to my Frenchie's teeth. At first, he was a little off-put by the mint smell of his water and drank it very begrudgingly, but now it’s no problem. We have had this for about a month. Before, his front, lower, and middle teeth had so much plaque that we couldn’t scrape it or anything. It’s almost gone. No joke. And his breath was RANK...that was also severely reduced. I am VERY impressed with this product and hope it is NEVER discontinued as every dog I will ever have for the rest of my life will have this in their morning water." —Kellee

    Get it from Amazon for $7.15.

    23. A double-sided edges brush for smoothing and laying your edges (if you want to!). On one end is a boar bristle brush that gently massages your scalp and increases blood flow and hair growth. The other end is a mini comb to polish your look.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It goes without saying that you 100% do not need to lay your edges if you don't want to!

    Promising review: "I've never really used a soft bristle brush so I was skeptical about one being good for edge control. This brush does a good job. The size of brush and the soft bristles make it easier to manage your edges. I am very satisfied with this product." —Carrollton Va

    Get it from Amazon for $2.49.

    24. A hair finishing stick so you can clean up all those random strands that escape from ponytails and buns. It's basically like a mascara wand coated in natural plant oils for your hair.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of products like this, but I figured it was cheap enough to try. I'm SO glad I did! I always have what I call 'fluh fluhs' coming out of the part on my head and no matter how many times I wet them down they stick straight up again. This product sticks them down and they stay down! The only caution I would give is that there's a little learning curve of how hard to press the wand to your hair. I find that I need a very light touch or I get too much of the product in my hair, which then looks a little greasy. If you wipe the brush as you pull it out you should be ok — just like mascara! Great buy!" —tinyntuff

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    25. An exfoliating lip brush to loosen dead skin flakes from your pout. It's double sided; one side is for scrubbing and the other is to stimulate circulation in your lips to make them appear fuller.

    Model holding the brushes, which have different textures for different levels of scrubbing
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I admit I was skeptical about this product but my desperation to regain my soft lips made me click the buy button. My lips were dried, cracked, and even bleeding — very painful. Even my tried-and-true expensive-as-heck lip moisturizer I use couldn't help. Having this lip brush did the trick and made all the difference. The exfoliation must have allowed my lip moisturizer to get better absorbed. I was able to see results in just a couple days. Now I have soft and supple lips again. And it was so easy to clean the brush afterwards. Where has this thing been all my life? I don't think I can live without it now." —Double-J

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (available in three styles).

    26. An odor-eliminating spray that'll lift stains and odors fast. Each spray releases bacteria that feeds on the ammonia left behind after your pet's accidents, eliminating the urine completely and deterring your pet from peeing in the same spot again.

    Rocco & Roxie is a family-owned small business named after the Magleby family's pets Rocco, a labradoodle, and Roxie, a former shelter tabby cat. They make a variety of pet supplies, including cleaners, treats, grooming tools, accessories, and toys.

    Promising review: "We recently moved into a new apartment where a cat had peed or sprayed. The smell was overwhelming and we were so worried we wouldn't be able to get the smell out so I took a chance and bought two bottles based on the reviews. I emptied an entire bottle in the area the smell was the strongest (linoleum and carpets) and within an hour it was just a faint smell. This stuff is great because it doesn't mask the smell; it actually eliminated it!! I was skeptical but it was worth every penny. It doesn't have a harsh smell and it didn't stain anything or make us cough. If you are dealing with a pet odor situation get this stuff!" —rayray

    27. A glow-in-the-dark nail polish if you're looking for a wow-worthy reveal. It applies and dries looking like clear nail polish, but in the dark — bam! — it glows bright blue. Some reviewers also use it as a top coat over their regular nail polish.

    Big T Ranch is a Colorado-based small business that sells bath and body care items as well as fun gag gifts.

    28. An exfoliating water gel because it does the hard work of removing dead skin cells for you. Seriously, you'll be able to see little "beads" of dirt, debris, and dead skin go down the drain.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "OMG!!! Let me tell you, this is a must-buy. I was skeptical, but it really works. It's lightweight and all you do is apply it to your skin, massage for 30 seconds, and you can see the results immediately. You can see the dry skin come off of your face while you're massaging the product into your skin." —Nicole K

    29. A set of wad-free pads for keeping your bedsheets from tangling in the wash. If you've ever opened the dryer expecting...well...dry sheets only to find them tangled in a damp ball, you need this.

    Promising review: "I’m going to admit I was skeptical but these things actually work! My front loader machines twist my sheets up super tight and then takes two full cycles to dry (even after straightening them out). These little things kept them loose and allowed enough air circulation to dry them in one 40-minute cycle so I could get them right back on the bed. It was SO much better than the usual heading to bed and realizing the sheets were still half wet and then sleeping on top of the comforter for two days. Definitely worthy it." —Laurie Chiumento

    30. A tub of brightening, firming, and rejuvenating eye cream so you at least look like you got some sleep (even if you were up until 2 a.m. scrolling through Instagram).

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Love this eye cream. I've been using this product a little over a month and notice a significant difference. It has help reduce the puffiness around my eyes and also fine wrinkles. Love the way it moisturizes, leaving my skin smooth. I was a bit skeptical at first, but I've noticed the effects. I'm very happy I gave this product a try." —A Ford

    31. A pro lens kit to help you capture every 'gram-worthy moment in high definition, which will basically make up for you not having an iPhone 12.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It comes with both a 15x macro lens (for close-up shots) and a 45x wide angle lens as well as a rechargeable LED light clip, a charging cable, a lanyard, a cleaning cloth, and a case. Both lenses are compatible with all single and dual-camera phones (this includes all iPhones, Samsung Galaxy and Note phones, the Google Pixels, Huawei, and more).

    Promising review: "GUYS. I FINALLY FOUND THE PERFECT WIDE LENS. I got a cheaper one and the quality was so bad and the edges were black, BUT XENVO IS PERFECT. Easy to put on the phone (I have the iPhone XS) and they give you the macro lens, a light (it comes in handy!) and a freaking travel kit with a lanyard. I actually lost my lanyard but I emailed them and they will be sending me a new one for free. I’m so happy I made the choice to buy it. I was a bit skeptical, but it was completely worth it." —Judith

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99.

    32. A headlight restoration kit that'll help you scrub away years of sun damage that's turned your headlights hazy and dull.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I was initially skeptical of how well this kit would work (I mean, it was only $20!) and I wasn’t sure if the foggy-ness on my headlights was inside the lens or on the outside. But after seeing it for myself, I am now a believer! Seriously though, for $20, it makes it look like you basically have a brand new pair of lights! It is *so* worth the purchase. I’d highly recommend it, and whenever it wears off, I will certainly be purchasing another kit and doing this again." —Kysondra

    33. A pack of shower steamers if you've ever said, "Gee I wish there were bath bombs for showers" — tada! As the tablet dissolves, it releases therapeutic essential oils like lavender and chamomile to help you de-stress after a long day.

    34. A nail grinder because their overgrown claws are scratching and gouging your hardwood floors. It's super quiet and smooth, which is ideal for dogs who get spooked by regular nail clippers.

    Promising review: "Wow!! I was skeptical but let me tell you, this nail grinder is AMAZING!! It is the only tool that is strong enough to quickly grind my GSD's thick nails short. My dog does not like getting groomed and hates getting his nails clipped. I once clipped his nail too short and have been too scared to try again since then (and also because he gets anxious). Not anymore thanks to this tool. It took me only 15 minutes to grind all of his nails down short enough that they don't make a sound anymore when he walks. Thank you Dremel!! You officially saved my life :)" —I.

    Promising review: "I was very skeptical of this product. I have an at-home gel/shellac set, but so far this seems better and easier. I was worried the dip powder was going to be messy, but it’s not at all nor is it hard to use. This is super simple and goes on thick like an acrylic nail. I am very impressed with this product and want to get more colors!!" —Wilma wilson

    36. A Wet Brush so detangling your hair is a lot less painful. Though they're designed for wet hair, they work just as well on dry hair.

    Promising review: "OK, I was skeptical. I've used all sorts of brushes on my hair all my life and never had any make any big difference on my easily tangled hair. I still don't understand what the difference is with this brush, but it just glides so effortlessly through my wet, tangled hair — it's like magic! After so many years of struggling with my hair and using conditioning sprays to help speed the process, it's crazy that this brush just goes right through!" —L. H. Christenson

    37. A stainless-steel tongue scraper to banish bad bacteria and improve stinky breath. This way you won't suffer the embarrassment of someone offering you a breath mint.

    Promising review: "I was a bit skeptical about this because I thought it was just a glorified metal stick for $7. My tongue would be pretty dirty and white, and could never really be fully cleaned with a toothbrush. After purchasing and using it, I only wish I got it sooner, and it's one of my best purchases. It is just a single piece of metal but it has a an edge that's just sharp enough to scrape all the nasty stuff off without hurting. It takes a few days to get used to but I don't have much problem using it to clean deep in the back of my tongue. It's easy to clean and all the dirt rinses right off. I would highly recommend this; there's really nothing else that has done a good as a job cleaning my tongue." —Alan
